EuroMarine opens on 09 Dec. 2016 a call for candidates to join its Steering Committee (to be partially renewed every year from 2016 on, as decided by the GA during its 2015 meeting).

Three positions are open in 2017. 

Please note:

  • The SC is in principle composed of GA representatives (from Full Member organisations) but the EuroMarine Consortium Agreement allows for exceptions.
  • The SC would welcome applications from candidates whose election could broaden the areas of expertise or regions 'represented' in the SC, or would improve multiple balances.
  • The SC would welcome an additional early career scientist among its members (to be nominated by the corresponding GA representative) in order to broaden the SC perspective.

Please refer to the attached call text for details.

Candidates are invited to fill in and return the attached 2017 SC candidate form to secretariatateuromarinenetwork [dot] eu by 22 January 2017.

The General Assembly will vote for candidates during its 07-08 Feb. 2017 meeting in Brussels. While their term officially starts in July 2017, the three new SC members will be invited (if present) to attend the SC meeting that will be held on 09 Feb. morning after the GA meeting, and to participate in any online SC meeting or email exchanges prior to the start of their term.
